    China is sending trucks to spray bleach on entire cities as the country struggles to contain the Wuhan coronavirus

    Mass spraying of entire cities was first reported back in January, when video of government efforts to sanitize Shanghai residential areas of coronavirus first emerged on social media.

    These and other extraordinary government efforts continued to intensify on Friday as the death toll from the spreading virus rose to over 700 with more than 34,500 total cases, according to the Washington Post. The New York Times also reported on Friday that the first American citizen had died in China from the coronavirus.

    “Few details about the American, who died on Thursday, were immediately available. The person was around 60 years old, according to the United States Embassy in Beijing,” said the Times.
